1031 Exchange of property income tax break for Investors 

If an investment property is sold, Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code allows the seller to defer the payment of capital gains taxes.  In order for the entire tax liability to be deferred, the taxpayer must reinvest all of the sale proceeds and buy a property of equal or greater value, and the new property must be acquired within 180 days.  There are significant requirements set forth in Section 1031, and smart investors consult with income tax professionals and real estate attorneys.

There are solid reasons for Orange County CA real estate investors to continue to like buying and selling of residential properties.
